plus success equals one massive right wing freakout. president obama's health care law is working. and many on the right just can't handle it. here's what i'm talking about. >> well, nelson mandela stood up against a great injustice and was willing to pay a huge price for that. that's the reason he's mourned today because of that struggle he performed. but you're right. what he was advocating for was not necessarily the right answer, but he was fighting against some great injustice. and i would make the argument that, you know, we have a great injustice going on in this country with an ever-increasing size of government that is taking over and controlling people's lives. and obama care is front and center in that. >> yes. he just compared fighting the health care law to fighting apartheid. rick santorum doesn't have to like the health care law, but he's a former u.s. senator. does he really think it compares to government-backed racial segregation. but this is the ugliest we've seen from comparing the law that saves lives to hurricane katrina to saying the law was terrorizing the
the u.s. >>> this past weekend was president obama's deadline to get a sick patient back on its feet -- health care website. it's been getting emergency car since it began life in critical condition two months ago. after the disastrous start that cost the president a big dip in poll numbers, he promised to have it work by the end of november, this past weekend. karen traverse explains that the website seems to be working tonight. >> reporter: since its launch two months ago, health care.goff has be-- healthcare.gov has bee plagued by system crashes and slow speeds. the obama administration says the site's on the mend. >> we were able to make the necessary improvement to the website so the vast majority of americans who use the website have an experience in which the site functions effectively. >> reporter: the white house set a deadline of december 1st to reach the goal. over the weekend, it released a report touting what it says is significant progress. some 400 software bugs and hardware problems have been fixed. it's now accessible 90% of the time, that's up from just over 40% in
insurance through obama care. nearly 80% say they think the quality of health care will either stay the same or get worse because of the affordable care act. and more than 50% think that obama care will make their health costs increase. president obama may have won the youth vote back in 2008 and 2012 with 60% of the vote but what harvard poll finds 40% of young voters approve of his job. he'll have a lot of convincing to do. >> chris, there are other polls much more popular with young people. that grabbed some attention yesterday. >> where is the surprise in all of this. >> i was going to ask you about this. >> why anybody in their 20s with very little money want to shell out anything for anything long term? they want to shell out what they have to shell out especially if they are married with kids. this is the old consumer curve. the indifference curve. economics 101. people prefer this stuff now. that's use get paid interest to lend your money and deposit it in a bank. it's indifference. people want the money now. so clearly for a young person to think ahead or take personal responsibilit
of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking. not anymore. if you still don't like obama care, you owe it to the american people to tell us what you are for. not just what you're against. >>> here at 30 rock, we are counting down to tonight's lighting of the famous rockefeller christmas tree. that war on christmas, a lot of hum bug, of course. but as president obama prepares to join in the national tree-lighting on friday, he's got a few other things to attend to. first, including a long list of policy goals that he wants to achieve for the american people. starting, of course, with the affordable care act. the affordable care for all. so just this afternoon, the president kept up his three-week push to promote the affordable care act. this time in a white house youth summit. >> i'm going to need you all to spread the word about how the affordable care act really works. what its benefits are, what its protections are. and most importantly, how people can sign up. i know people call this law obama care. and that's okay. because i do care. and -- i do. >> that event highlighting
not want the health reform to pass in the first place. they didn't want president obama and the democrats to have a legislative win. they didn't like the policy itself. but now the policy itself is in effect. and it means that millions of americans now can get health insurance who could not get it in the past. and millions of americans who did have health insurance in the past should have better and more affordable choices for their coverage. and all the talking about it in washington, if you put it aside, really, the real question is whether this much more under the radar political effort in the states can effectively stop americans from getting insurance that they might really like if only they knew how to do it. joining us, radio host on msn, michael spent eight weeks trying to find insurance options for himself through healthcare.gov before it finally worked this week. michael, great to see you, thank you for joining us. >> thank you, rachel for having me. >> so you had a miserable eight weeks, early experience trying to get through the federal exchange. but now it has worked for you,

and serving as special adviser for health policy in the obama administration. krystal, it sounds like the website is working like a website. >> yeah. and that is a beautiful thing, both because it's time for us to move past the debates and the questions about glitches and into actually seeing this law work in action. i mean, i think the republicans are going to find themselves in a very perilous place where they have pinned all of their hopes and all of their messaging and all of their platform on hoping that this law fails. they grabbed on to the website and they grabbed on to the president wasn't very straight with you. but over time the law is going to work better and better and we are going to see success stories that we are increasingly seeing and republicans are going to be caught with their pants down and hanging on to this thing, but we really hate obama care, don't you hate it, too? >> zeek, the numbers are still a little vague. they can't tell us how many people have purchased health insurance, how many haven't. they can tell us how many people have made a selection off the

, president obama will start a new push for the health-care.gov website. in an event at the white house he will highlight people he says have been held by his health or care reform law and website. the president also working on possible subsidies to insurance companies to let people keep their existing insurance plans as was originally promised. the government say most of the glitches on these website have now been fixed. and now that to the website is supposed to be running smoother, consumers are reporting mixed success as they try and lock on to the updated health care exchange. >>james: and man was killed in a shark attack while fishing from a kayak in hawaii. it happened but it off the island of maui. apparently, the fishermen speak for dangling over the edge of his kayak when a shark bit one of them. a friend kayaking near by tried to stop the man's bleeding with a tourniquet and called on a nearby tour boat for health and they sailed a shore. >>: we all helped get the entire kayak with the body on to the boat. my wife, who is a physician determined as well as she could that the pers

put forward, if they're saying we need to end obama care, they're going to be taking away health insurance from people who have had it for a while. and that itself can be a powerful counterattack. but interestingly enough, it's not just democratic government who's embracing this, it's a handful of republican governors as well. and i think that that is a really revealing sort of point. governor kasich of ohio said the reason we're doing the medicaid expansion is it's a human issue, it's a moral issue that these people need to be covered. and i feel like those voices are going to begin to get more attention as well. >> so, susan, suzy is not wrong on this point, one of the things that republicans are right about when they have angst about the government, that once it is implemented, it is hard to go take it away. so this point that once people have the obama care, talking about repealing it or taking it back becomes a very different issue than having never implemented it. does that mean it's sort of the end of that repeal discussion going forward? >> well, the repeal portion, yes.

says president obama is going to be doing some public thing every day to highlight good things about health reform, and to get people to sign up for insurance. december 23rd is the next big enrollment deadline for obama care, so the white house is taking on a new effort to fight back against the law's extremely loud critics. you can find of feel the change in tone from the white house on this subject already. they don't sound like they're playing defense on the subject anymore. the president gave a short kickoff speak about it this afternoon in washington, d.c., and i think it was telling this was the biggest applause line in the speech. >> i have always said i would work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. you have good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. i want everybody to be sure of that. >> on thursday this week, the venue will be different, the crowd bill probably be a little younger, and the president will be forced off script undoubtedly because president obama on thursday is sitting down for a one-on
